Beyond the Gates: African American History at Bellefontaine Cemetery

Bellefontaine Cemetery and Arboretum

Off-site Event Join Dan Fuller, Event and Volunteer Coordinator at Bellefontaine Cemetery and Arboretum, for a public presentation off-site. Beyond the Gates: African American History at Bellefontaine Cemetery A misconception about Bellefontaine Cemetery is that the grounds were only for 'some' St. Louisans.  On the contrary, as a non-sectarian cemetery, Bellefontaine has been open to 'all' since its beginning in 1849. African American history is a vibrant topic on the 314 acres of Bellefontaine. From Mother Baltimore to John Berry Meachum to Ida Woolfolk, African American history has always been present in this Rural Cemetery. https://www.slcl.org/content/history-past-and-present-%E2%80%9Cburied-history%E2%80%9D   Tuesday, Feb. 28, from 6:00 p.m. until 7:30 p.m. Grand Glaize Library 1010 Meramec Station Road Manchester, MO 63021 (314) 994-3300 Get more info and register here!
